Storyboard Text

  • A bodhisattva is born as a hare and sees the full moon, brightly lit in the sky
  • He realizes it is the day before the 15th day of the month when one must not consume any food before feeding a guest first. He is very upset that he has no food good enough to offer to a guest, so as a hare, he decides he will offer himself as a meal to his future guests.
  • The king of gods; Sakka, is wanders through the forest looking for the hare after being baffled by hearing his selfless and saddening resolve.
  • After meeting Sakka, the hare lights a fire and offers himself to the king, throwing himself into the flames.
  • The king is stunned, but appreciates the hares sacrifice, thus deciding to honour him by drawing an image of the hare on the moon.
  • The End.
